Surprised, I Haven't noticed a thread on here about the game, so I apologize if my search wasn't more extensive.

Anyways, I was curious as to your guys thoughts on the game. I bought on Tuesday, didn't like the first patch I downloaded, so I started making a scenario, then a buddy gave me an updated version so I've just started on my first week, with my patch on the back-burner till I feel like doing the research.

So far, I have really enjoyed, don't know if the whole regional thing is that applicable today, but hey, I guess it does make it interesting. Anyway, I'll post more later, if this thread survives and I get further along.

To me, the game, so far, is pretty fuckin' sweet.

That is all.

I am patiently looking forward to Matthew Hocking's review that was written quite some time ago apparently. I feel like a doofus, but oh well, thanks for the heads up.

I don't think I have a good enough computer to play this game, though. I don't like how the Extreme Warfare game has gotten increasingly complicated with each new inception.

You should read other (onlineonslaught.com) sites, then.

Uh...my opinions haven't changed much. They're working overtime to fix it up (they've added a ton of new angles and patched most of the glaring errors), but the game still feels lackluster in some areas (match commentary, for example, is nothing special), and with the RaveX stats pack now a month overdue, you have to go digging for "real world" material (which you often have to edit yourself anyway, because all the ones I've toyed around with were poorly compiled). 90/100 is still fair, I suppose curved because of the new angles and lack of crashing, I'd bump to a 91-92ish. I think it's a great game, and certainly worth my money, but it suffers from a lack of personality. Some parts feel really...boring or otherwise confusing. I think a more polished user interface could help that, and I think that, next year, Adam could serve well to bring back some of the more personable elements (the "Internet" and the match reporters, for example) to make the game feel less like a spreadsheet about wrestling and more like entertainment.

Other than that, the only technical issues that the game has are 1) Staff sometimes mysteriously disappear (400 says they're working on that) and 2) While the game has gotten better at coping with memory issues, it's still very much a system hog (a 384MB machine could only run it with US and Canada with any sort of efficiency).

With each patch, more and more bugs get fixed, the game becomes more “complete”, and tons of new angles are added. Total Extreme Warfare gets better and better almost literally by the day.
